Can thanks to my Secret Santa Michael. Pours a clear orange gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can [12oz] at Alamo Drafthouse - South Lamar, Austin, Oct. 18. Pours a clear, bubbly golden-orange with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Nice aroma of citrusy hops, slightly resiny, and with some caramel malt in the back. Really nice hoppy flavour with malt in the back and a nice bitter finish -- this is quite easy to drink. Medium bodied. Simple but pleasant IPA.

Itís great to come across this Fort Worth. A good IPA that isnít too heavy on the alcohol. Itís a standard American IPA and doesnít stick out from the rest, but itís in a can and itís from Texas. A good entry.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden in color with a big, white head that goes down fast but leaves a good amount of lacing. Smells like citrus hops and bready malt. The malt comes out first with those citrus hops playing around on your tongue. Then the bitterness builds slowly until it lingers at a high intensity after swallowing, but the hops arenít overwhelmingly bitter thoughout. I think this is one of the most balanced and consistent ipas Iíve come across.
